I saw this pretty little butterfly the other day. I was on my way to work when a fluttering of blue caught my eye. Because I am always a curious cat and easily given to distraction, I rummaged the insides of my very orderly bag madly for my camera to get myself a magnificent shot (which did not happen, as you can obviously see from the photo above). I had to tiptoe after the little thing (it was pretty elusive, as all butterflies probably are) and as expected, I couldn't get anywhere near it. I chased the butterfly like a doofus for about 10 minutes, taking photos of wet rock, puddles, and random pieces of garbage along the way. I gave up after realizing that the butterfly wasn't going to cooperate with this human and that I was already running late for work.


I remember thinking as I walked away, all I wanted was a good shot.

niki, why not try getting a lomo camera? hehehe. i got mine recently, it's a bit bigger then most digicams now but the pics are beautiful. it's mostly point&shoot so it isn't that hard to use. :)

and thanks for dropping by my site! :)

Here's how to shoot a butterfly:

1) Slap the butterfly with your hand. That should knock it unconscious without killing it (hopefully).
2) Take a picture.
3) Say yay!
